Being hurt is not a good feeling. No one wants to be hurt. However, when we get hurt by someone there is nothing you can do about it. You can’t stop it from happening. However, being miserable is your choice. There are going to be so many situations and trials that will hurt you in life, but they can only hurt you once. It’s your choice to remain miserable.
I know this guy that was breaking up with his girlfriend and as each day of him moving out of their apartment came closer, he constantly complained and talked bad about her. No matter what anyone said to him about just letting it go and moving on, he just couldn’t stop talking bad about her. He was only making himself miserable.
I get where he was coming from and I understand the pain he was feeling (been there, done that). However, we should never get to the point where we allow our anger to control us to the point of making our lives miserable. You have to have enough confidence in yourself to be able to vent for a moment then move on. If not, you are literally placing a lot of pain on your heart to have to carry around and that is not good.
None of us go into relationships thinking we are going to get hurt. Oh wait! Let me take that back, some of us do think that way. Either way, you go in with an open heart allowing the chips to fall where they may basically. Life is full of risk. We take risk everyday. You take a risk when you drive on the freeway, fly in an airplane and cross the streets, those are all risks. We have to take risk in life, but we also have to have faith that we would get through whatever it is we have to go through.
Take my man Noah, he took a risk, by following Gods message for him to build an enormous ark and all the tasks to follow, but he did it with the faith that it will all work out in the end. Whatever risk you’ve taken even if it has caused you some pain; you will make it through as well.
The point here is that in life we will have disappointments, hurts and times where we may be angry, but you have to choose how you are going to deal with it. Are you going to be bitter, resentful and miserable for the rest of your life? Or are you going to dust yourself off, continue to love and be positive? It is really up to you. Because, guess what? Whoever hurt you will be in no pain, they’re most likely purposely or not on to their next victim.
Let this be the start of a new direction for you going forward. Instead of holding yourself prisoner with your anger, why not unlock that cell door by continuing to spread love, be positive and forgive those who have trespassed against you. By doing so, you will never have to enter that prison again.
